The Gibson 1963 SG Special Reissue VOS Cherry Red #206893 from the Custom store represents the special edition of the iconic rock 'n' Roll instrument with authentic 1963 specifications. The electric guitar, which is coveted for its simplicity and unmistakable double-horn design, draws its powerfully distinctive sound from two P-90 pickups in soapbar format and impresses with its traditional mahogany construction and proven playability. The Gibson 1963 SG Special Reissue VOS Cherry Red comes with a robust Gibson hardshell case and a signed certificate of authenticity.

Traditional mahogany construction

The most important component of the instrument, which gives the SG its unique charm, is a classically slim mahogany body which, with its discreet Cutaways and contoured shaping, not only ensures comfortable playability, but also provides ideal access to the high fretboard positions. This is made from rosewood according to a proven recipe and offers 22 frets with Authentic Medium Jumbo fret wire, while the mahogany neck with its resonant long neck foot and its authentic '63 Medium C profile provides additional resonance and a proven feel for the left hand.

Equipped with two Gibson P-90 Soapbar pickups and a classic Gibson Lightning Bar Wraparound bridge, the Gibson 1963 SG Special Reissue VOS Cherry Red #205183 is clearly designed for the hot sounds of rock 'n' roll.

The characteristics of the Gibson SG Special in combination with the high output of the P-90 pickups make it the ideal electric guitar for rock and hotter blues.

Gibson P-90 Soapbar Single Coils

In contrast to the standard model equipped with two humbuckers, the Special version of the SG uses two Gibson P-90 pickups in the neck and bridge positions. As the forerunner of the famous P.A.F. double coil, the P-90 has been used in numerous Gibson instruments since the post-war period and is still celebrated today for its strikingly mid-range and powerful tone. The electrics of the 1963 SG Special Reissue VOS Cherry Red are completely hand-wired and assign separate controls for Volume and tone to both pickups.

Authentic VOS hardware

The hardware equipment of the Gibson 1963 SG Special Reissue VOS Cherry Red also follows the traditional equipment of the original SG Special and is simple but incredibly effective. On the body, the famous Gibson Lightning Bar Bridge as a wraparound design with compensated riders for each string provides direct resonance transmission and clean intonation. Both the Cherry Red nitrocellulose finish and the hardware appointments have undergone a meticulous VOS treatment and convey the typical 'broken-in' character of a well-played, well-maintained original.
